What You'll Get
Great art often comes at a great price, such as a vast sum of money, decades of fruitless toil, or a year's supply of Orange Slice. Begin your journey to attaining a masterwork with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a private one-hour art class at Art Class Dallas (a $70 value). Classes take place on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 p.m., 7 p.m., and 8 p.m.
Led by professional artist Cynthia Chartier, Art Class Dallas helps developing da Vincis tap their inner artiste with a comfortable atmosphere and supportive instruction. With an emphasis on creativity and expression, Chartier sidesteps the paint-by-numbers approach that commonly results in generic images of the Hulk to help her students find a unique voice. The one-hour class provides brushes and paint (canvas must be bought separately at an additional cost), and students are welcome to bring their own beverages, allowing for a soothing cappuccino or glass of wine to foster the creative process.
Set in an expansive and eclectic studio space, Art Class Dallas fuels artistic motors with its vibrant and improvisational ambiance. The lofted ceiling provides generous light for examining your work or performing impromptu dental exams, and the paint-streaked walls and tables provide a lively reminder of the spontaneous joy of painting.

About Art Class Dallas
Art creates collateral damage. Paint flecks—ocean blues, blood reds, and fell-asleep-tanning oranges—splatter the floors and walls of any active studio. Art Class Dallas wears its creative war wounds proudly, welcoming member artists and guests to its eccentric, warehouse-style space. After drawing their eyes away from the expressionist splatters and the finished pieces hung overhead, painters focus on creating a new work with the blank canvas in front of them. Artistic director and founder Cynthia Chartièr oversees the studio and espouses a philosophy for painting that encourages self-discovery through the brush strokes, the shaping, and the texturing that goes into each work. Her space regularly hosts open workshops, sparking the imaginations of singles, couples, corporate teams, and private parties.
